Living Well Partnership- part time GP
Part Time - Competitive Salary
Living Well Partnership was formed in 2017 following the merger of four GP surgeries and three smaller branch sites. The GP partners were brought together by a growing awareness that we could deliver more streamlined medical care by sharing resources.
We are delighted that our patients have benefited from faster access to a larger range of services while achieving operational efficiencies behind the scenes, with dedicated specific teams to support clinicians working, for example call handling, patient services, and performance, to mention a few.
This Oct 2021 we had our ‘j-code’ merger allowing all of our 38,500 patients to be on one EMIS system and as a result are looking to expand our GP clinical teams in innovative ways, recognising that one box does not fit all!
We care for 38,500 adults and children across the eastern Southampton region. Our seven different sites ensure everyone has local GP access, from the inner city to the rural outskirts.
Our supportive clinical team is made up of 11 GP Partners, as well as 19 Non-Principal GPs including 5 retainers, employed directly by LWP. Our GPs work alongside Advanced Nurse Practitioners, Practice Nurses, a Physician Associate, Health Care Assistants, Social Prescribers, Care Co-ordinators and our own in-house Pharmacy team.
The health and well-being of our patients is at the heart of everything we do. Our goal is to provide an accessible, friendly, evidence based and compassionate service. By taking into account an individual’s holistic needs we will utilise the correct professionals from our large multi-disciplinary team to address the problem presented. We pride ourselves that we are able to address medical, physical, psychological and social aspects of care.
As a practice that strives for continuing clinical excellence, we are passionate about helping to train the next generation of competent clinicians. We are a thriving and progressive training hub supporting physician associates, nurses, HCA’s, pharmacy technicians, independent prescribers, medical students, newly qualified doctors and GP registrars through their academic and clinical education.
Come and join us
We are looking for exceptional GPs who want to embrace the changes in general practice but value the preservation of continuity. We can accommodate and help you develop special interests, and welcome part-time, agile working. Come and see what we are doing, come and be enthused about general practice again, come and join us.

We do this by cultivating an environment where we can each:
We understand the fundamental importance of health and wellbeing, both as individuals and as a group. Optimal health is a collective effort, and through close support and teamwork, we aim to create a working environment where every member of the team is as healthy as they can be.
We are committed to developing and realising our own potential and the potential of others. Every day, we bring an enthusiasm and determination to evolve, both professionally and personally. We come to work with a strong conviction that as a team we can achieve excellent results.

Working as a GP does require sacrifice, and sometimes we find ourselves in at the deep end, but our team know how to provide support ensuring you can go home with a clear mind. After all, before we can provide care and support for others, we each need to be healthy ourselves.
If you want to see transformation that improves lives city-wide, you can do that work here.
